The choir is travelling to Llandudno on 4th November to compete in the North Wales Choral Festival, one of Britain’s leading competitions. This is a return visit, having taken part in the 2010 festival when we achieved a creditable third place, losing out to Amici Men in first place with Flint Male Voice Choir second. We sang High Barbary, The Wanderer and Sloop John B. The compere quipped that the many blazers worn by choristers made the event resemble a bus drivers’ convention. A few miles down the road in Rhyl was the scene of one of the choirs greatest triumphs when we won the National Championship in 1997.
